    Gone Solar Too

    Yes, absolutely. Coral color wasn't as good as with my halides. But growth was extremely fast.

    Gone Solar Too

    Tank is now a FW plant tank with discus. I thought I was going to move so split up my system into two smaller systems. Didn't properly adjust my alk in doing so and lost all my acros. Ended up not moving but decided not to replace the acros. Kept my favorite corals that were left and...

    Tank Leak help

    There was water between the glass. So, siliconed the inside of the bulkhead hole. Silicone went in about 1/8 inch. Then, put bulkheads back in with a bead of silicone around the base for extra measure. Fortunately, these bulkheads are not under pressure. So, hopefully this will solve the...

    Tank Leak help

    Just had a thought. When the bulkheads leaked, I sealed them from the bottom. I did not pull them and replace the gasket or seal them from the top. If the tank has a double bottom, is it possible that the bulkhead is leaking between the glass and then leaking out the corner? Pic of the tank...

    Tank Leak help

    I've got a 300 gallon tank, 96 x 30 x25. I recently drained it to convert to a freshwater plant tank (never fear, still have the other 300 reef). Anyway, drained it to pull the last of the rock and sand out. Filled it back up with freshwater and 20 gallons of vinegar. Ran it for a week when I...

    Muriatic Acid to Clean Aquarium?

    No need for the bleach. It's drained down to about a quarter inch. Will shop vac out the rest tomorrow. Vinegar soak was more than enough.

    Not for a freshwater plant tank.

    Muriatic Acid to Clean Aquarium?

    Cleaning it now. Algae is coming off fairly easily. Got some new scraper blades at MACNA. I'm using a medium length Kent Marine scraper and one of the long handled Continuum scrapers. Tank when I got home from MACNA last night. Slowly draining and cleaning as I go.

    Muriatic Acid to Clean Aquarium?

    Got the sand out and finished draining the tank last night. First pick is the tank on Friday evening. Second pic is a close up of the back of the tank. Third pic is a used sump I picked up on Friday with a brand new-in-box Mag 3. I will be hooking that up tonight and adding the 20 gallons of...
